ActiveRoute

The world’s best-rated routing & navigation engine designed specifically for cycling, walking and micromobility

ActiveRoute uses the power of AI to recommend safe, healthy and pleasant routes that bike and scooter riders love!

Why do you need ActiveRoute?

Planning cycling routes is notoriously difficult

Compared car drivers, cyclists consider many more factors than just distance and time when planning routes. These factors also vary widely among riders and depend on the purpose and context of the trip.

Standard routing algorithms are not powerful enough

Standard shortest-path routing algorithms, such as those implemented in the widely-used OSRM, do not have the power to accurately model how cyclists, walkers and scooter riders choose their routes in the real-world.

ActiveRoute leverages new AI approach to routing

Combining learning with multi-criteria optimization techniques, ActiveRoute has the power to think as a human rider and thus recommend routes than human riders would naturally prefer to follow.

Powerful Cycling Navigation Features

The ActiveRoute provides unique features not found in other routing and navigation engines

ActiveRoute optimizes the overall rider’s experience on the route–not simplistic mathematical criteria.

Human-Centric

Routes can be optimized for numerous real-life route-choice criteria, including safety, air-pollution or comfort, and combinations thereof.

Multiple Types of Routes

Routes can be optimized for different purposes–from mostly direct commuting routes, through a more meandering tourist routes up to circular routes for recreational and sport rides.

Alternative Route Sets

Returns a diverse set of multiple route alternatives along the defined optimization criteria to give the user a choice.

Personalized Routes

Routes can be tailored to individual route search preferences, which can be either set explicitly by the user or learned automatically from the user's historical data.

Time-Dependent Routes

The best routes vary throughout the time. The ActiveRoute engine plans routes based on the hour of the day, the day of the week and the season of the year.

Community-enriched

Crowd-sourced content, including big GPS tracking data, route ratings and user-reported issues are leveraged to suggest routes best reflecting real cyclist route preferences and infrastructure conditions.

Powered by Deep Tech

Thanks to years of scientific research, the routing engine implements novel AI-augmented algorithmic techniques. The combination of big-data, learning and powerful graph algorithms allows capturing the finest details of route—and reflecting them in route recommendations.

Rich Data-Driven

Integrates many diverse data sources to create a high-fidelity routing model, including road, cycleway and pavement network, cycling infrastructure, terrain elevation, surface quality, accidents, air quality, traffic intensity or public transport routes.

Natively Multi-Criterial

Based on advanced algorithms that can simultaneously optimize for a multitude of route choice factors – including travel time, safety, comfort, healthiness, or physical effort -- when calculating recommended routes.

Self-Improving

Constantly learns from big GPS tracking data, route ratings and crowdsourced issue reports to always suggest routes that best reflect real-world cyclist route preferences and infrastructure conditions.

Any Type of Light & Active Mobility

From walking to e-bikes, the ActiveRoute engine can tailor routes for all types of micromobility

Bicycles

Routes are customized for each bicycle type, considering in particular the bike's sensitivity to rough surfaces, steep climbs or the bike's weight and width.

e-Scooters

Specific physical and regulatory aspects of e-scooters, such as their very small wheels or pavement riding restrictions, are taken into account.

e-Bikes

The specifics of e-bikes, in particular higher travel speeds, lower-effort pedaling or greater weight are taken into account and routes modified accordingly.

Walking & Running

Detailed model of the pedestrian network, in particular road crossings, staircases, or subways are taken into account and allow tailoring routes to specific user segments
